Image Statement: This collage is one of my series called 2020 Ruminations. The term "anthropause" refers to a global reduction in modern human activity, especially travel, and was coined by a team of researchers in June 2020 in an article discussing the possible impact of COVID-19 lockdown on wildlife.
